Having the right financial tools and methodologies are of crucial importance for both small and large businesses. Webster University offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in finance.

Webster University’s Bachelor of Science in Finance degree program prepares our students to meet the growing demand for finance professionals by imparting crucial knowledge and skills in important areas such as raising capital, making investments, and understanding the financial markets in which businesses operate. In addition to completing the core business curriculum requirements, students majoring in finance will study the three general areas of finance: corporate finance, investments, and financial institutions and markets. After completion of the finance core, students have choices to tailor their program according to their interest and career outlook.

The Master of Science in Finance is designed to provide a quantitative and comprehensive examination of the finance field, advancing through corporate finance, investments, and markets and institutions. Additionally, students will experience significant exposure to supporting coursework in the closely related fields of accounting and economics. A capstone experience will tie together the major finance topics, with a significant focus on mergers and acquisitions, and will expose students to literature, and the analysis thereof, pertinent to the field.
